That’s All’s I Can Stands And I Can’t Stands No Mower

Elvis the crocodile attacks a lawnmower at the Australian Reptile Park in Gosford, north of Sydney, in this still image taken from video December 28, 2011. Two workers at a reptile park near Sydney ran for their lives on Wednesday when a 500 kg crocodile named Elvis suddenly lunged at them, making off with their lawnmower.

That’s 1,100 lbs. of lurking, lunging lizard, lunching. According to Wiki, the top speed for an Australian freshwater croc is about 11mph, easily outrun, unless you happen to mowing grass next to its territory, so don’t do it.
